Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Robin Watson

Geography can be best described as an applied environmental Science subject. Geography promotes understanding of how people and the environment interact together and the patterns that result at different places, times and scales. It is a contemporary course concerned with resolving issues about the environment and sustainable development. Geography deals with the real world and the knowledge and skills that are learnt make it a very useful subject to study at school because it complements many different subject and career choices. Of course students can also later specialize in Geography where graduates are well sought after and extremely employable in a variety of professions. For more information please see Mr Watson.
